I would like to have a Ruger Scout rifle in 308 winchester, but the $800 price ticket is a little difficult to swallow.
For me, the rifle would be used for hunting at ranges around 125 yards and less. For that range a Marlin 336 in 30-30 would do the just probably as good as a 308. And a Marlin 336 cost a lot less then the ruger gunsite scout rifle.
If I had $800 laying around and nothing better to buy, I would grab one.
I just think the scout rifle is a little over priced. But I am sure there are people who disagree.
